Overall Aerohive Conversation Starters • How are you handling BYOD? • If you don’t have a formal policy, we can help! • How are you planning to make use of 802.11ac? • Not sure where it’s worth the premium? We can help! • Do you have any teleworker initiatives? • What does it take for you to roll out new location or mobile classroom today? • How many different management interfaces do you have to look at to manage a typical school?
EDUCATION Interactive learning away from a whiteboard No more notebooks and paper – Rich multimedia environment Students using their own devices to learn Anytime anywhere learning

Questions from Aerohive Sales staff – Higher Ed • Would you like the ability to throttle/prohibit certain apps at certain times in certain buildings? • How do you keep your staff traffic separate from student traffic?

Who makes the rules? The 802.11 Standard Modulation and Data Rate • 802.11a • 802.11b • 802.11g • 802.11n • 802.11ac • Security • 802.11i • 802.11w • Roaming • 802.11r • 802.11k A little 802.3 Power Over Ethernet (PoE) • 802.3af • 802.3at • Quality of Service (QoS) • 802.11e Product Interoperability
A word about 802.11ac • 3x3:3 Radios • 256 QAM • 80 MHz Channels • 4x4:3 or 4x4:4 radios • Standards based TxBF • MU-MIMO • Up to 8x8:8 • 160 MHz Channels 1st Generation 2 nd Generation Too early to know
The Goal of 802.11ac Most of all, though, it’s for 802.11ac clients!
802.11ac Channel Bonding Adds benefits to single stream devices! Primary 20 MHz channel = 60 Primary 40 MHz channel = 60 & 64 Primary 80 MHz channel = 52, 56.,60 & 64 • For example: • Station wants to send 80 MHz frame, but station 52 is in use by neighboring AP • Receiver refuses transmission, and drops back to 40 MHz Primary 80 MHz channel = 36, 40, 44, 52, 56.,60 & 64 • Station listens to be sure that all stations on primary channels are clear, then sends the widest frame it can • If all frames aren’t available, backs down to next smaller frame group
QAM In phase = 0 In phase = 0 180 out of phase = 1 Binary Phase Shift 16 QAM 4 levels of amplitude & 4 phase shifts Each point has 4 characters, from 0000 to 1111
256 QAM in Wave 1 of 802.11ac 802.11n When the EVM is too large, transmission drops down to the next largest 802.11ac
802.11ac roll out recommendation (Consider Client mix) *Deploy first generation 802.11ac in high-density client deployment area such as big conference rooms, auditoriums, lecture halls, student unions and other large spaces.
